NFL Draft: Chiefs Draft Pick Jeff Allen Fits The Mold

We won't know for sure until the Kansas City Chiefs confirm but it sure sounds like the Chiefs 2nd round draft pick Jeff Allen will be playing guard in the NFL. At the very least, he offers them some flexibility.

Allen's name was bandied about very much before the draft so we don't have any reported contact between him and the Chiefs, but that doesn't mean they didn't visit with each other before the draft. SB Nation's draft blog, Mocking The Draft, has this quick scouting report for those of you looking for more information.

He's started a lot of games in his Illinois career. It seems like his bust factor is pretty low. He has position versatility, meaning he can play multiple positions like left or right tackle, and guard (where he'll probably play).

The more I think about it, this seems to fit the type of player the Chiefs like to target. In hindsight, we probably should've thought a little more about him.

Two years ago it was Jon Asamoah in the third round and last year it was Rodney Hudson in the second round. The middle of the Chiefs offensive line is already looking better.

As Kent Babb reports, the combined weight of the Chiefs first two picks is 652 pounds. Talk about getting the beef.
